The show follows Eddie Birdlace and his fellow marines as they celebrate their final moments together before departing for Vietnam when they find themselves in a ‘dogfight,’ a cruel game where they each bet money on who can bring the ugliest date to a party. Eddie sets his gaze on Rose, a local waitress who has never been on a date in her life, and they embark on a wild night that eventually ends in heartbreak. “Dogfight” is a story about the cruelty of human nature, finding forgiveness and starting over.
